How To Know When It’s Time To Replace Your Roof:
Depending on the type of roof, its lifespan can range anywhere from 20-50 years, and even more in some cases. While the lifespan of the roof depends on the variety, we’ll just focus on the most common roof variety – shingles. So outside of keeping track of the age of your roof, what are some warning signs it’s time for a replacement?
One sign is if you notice the shingles have bald spots. Once the granules from your roof have started wearing off, the whole roof is much more susceptible to damage from the sun.
If your shingles begin curling on your roof, it is time to start thinking about replacing said roof. This is a sign that weathering has occurred, and it means leaks and other problems may not be far behind.
Another sign is if you begin to see sunlight leaking through the roof in the attic. It is safe to say that if sunlight is leaking through, so will rain, snow, and air. If you notice this sign, it is probably time to call in a professional to examine the damage.
Finally, it is always important to think about curb appeal when evaluating if you should replace your roof. If the roof simply looks bad, has moss or algae on the shingles, or you’d like to give your home an updated roof, replacing your roof is a great way to make your home look better and to increase its resale value.
One more tip: keep an eye on if your neighbors are replacing their roofs. Chances are, if they are, it is time to replace yours as well.
